    Tory Plan to Scrap Councils

    Faced with a £54 million shortfall by 2020, Conservatives at County Hall want to scrap all Borough and District Councils in Nottinghamshire to create one "Super-Council" run from West Bridgford. Savings of £20-£30 million are promised to answer the County Council's financial woes. However County Durham, which went Unitary in 2009 and cut 2700 jobs, still has to make £39 million of cuts. It is a similar story for Cornwall and Wiltshire Unitary Councils.

    We are planning to distribute within this area a cross-party leaflet made up of short contributions from local people, outlining why the EU matters to them personally. The leaflet will be printed and distributed by the Newark and Sherwood Liberal Democrats but will not carry any other Lib Dem party branding as we want to encourage people from all political parties, or none, to have their say.
